Chalk Hill Clarendon Syrah 2016
Special Price $45.00 Regular Price $50.00
A standout Shiraz for us when we tasted in a line-up of about 40 wines… clearly the best wine of the day. This is a big wine with a marathon runners frame… bringing blackberries, blue fruits, woodsmoke, nougat and all other kinds of loveliness… Stunning now and with so much potential. No surprise that James Halliday’s Wine companion offers, ‘Almost impossible not to admire this. It has grunt and weight but nuance and savour-spice are also well and truly in the frame.’

A family business for six generations, the Harvey clan have six vineyards spread across McLaren Vale going back to 1897. Chalk Hill wines are small batch, hand crafted wines of distinction, reflective of the unique growing qualities of the region. Chalk Hill also owns the most excellent Alpha Crucis brand making staggeringly good, super premium kit. For value though it’s hard to go past the Chalk Hill branded kit in the $20-30 price range. These wines regularly pick up golds, trophies and big points from wine scribes.
